purchased this last month. Bike is cruiser but seat is hard after a few hours of riding. Was looking at replacing seat and this seemed a cheaper alternative. Boyfriend seems to be happy. Only complaint is although it comes with attachment loops, it does not come with straps to attach to bike.

Airhawk 2 Cruiser Seat Cushion
Item Code: AirhawkCruiserSeatCushion
Size: Small-18" x 12" and Medium-14" x 14"
Developed by a pioneer in the medical industry, the technology used in the Airhawk seat cushion was originally developed to prevent pressure injuries of patients who were bed-ridden or confined to a wheelchair. By using interconnected cells, the Airhawk cushion can adapt to the individual contours of the rider, and distribute weight in a way regular seats and pads can't. The non-slip surface on the underside of the pad sits securely on the top of the seat, and also comes with attachment loops for semipermanent mounting and security.
- Small cruiser will fit most standard street bikes
- Medium cruiser fits standard touring and cruisers
- The Airhawk 2 features a polyurethane inner bladder
- Airhawk 2 cushions have a 1 year warranty

I bought this hoping that it would help me to be able to have an easier ride on the back of my husband's Harley. With my bad back, we would have to stop every 20 minutes, and would have a sore back for two days. Tried it out for the first time today, and we could drive for over an hour before I needed to stop and stretch. When we got home, I noticed that my back isn't sore. YEAH!! The ONLY problem is that the straps need to be able to secure this better. Other than that, I love it and so does my tush and back.
I ride a Sportster and it really smooths out the ride. I am very happy with this purchase.
Great product, great company, they seel great products at good prices...my order was an over seas order and it arrived in excellent time...Those guys are good!
By writing in detail about your product you are help If you have any kind of hip, knee or back injury, These Airhawk cushions are great. The normal vibrations that emanate from motorcycle riding are gone with one of these babies. My back and hip are no issues anymore.. And I can ride again in comfort for hours and not feel sore when I get off my bike. These days I HAVE to ride a Burgman 650 exec...the cushion is magic. Without one I don't think I could ride. ...your biker buddies make better choices. Thank you.
I purchased this for my guy and it is an awesome item I am planning on buying one for myself.. the price is great also
Bought this for my wife's perch on our VN2000, and she is definitely in love with the Airhawk Seat Cushion. Despite the Mustang seat I put on the bike, she still does not have the stamina to go far between rest stops. This cushion keeps her in the saddle longer without any complaints, and it's a great buy at Jafrum right now.
Lots of riders have been there. You’re still two good hours away from your destination and it feels like you’ve ridden the last hundred miles on a bed of hot gravel. The constant pressure and lack of circulation is ruining your ride. You’ve tried gel inserts, foam pads, and even high dollar complete seat replacements. Still, the scenery and comradery of a long ride is just not worth the discomfort. This is more common than many riders want to admit and keeps some from riding at all. Well, guess what? Now there’s a solution; the Airhawk line of motorcycle seat cushions.
The Airhawk’s Shape Fitting Technology was originally developed for wheelchair users to equalize surface pressure. They soon realized that this design also offers vibration control and shock absorbtion. This technology proved very useful in the trucking industry and soon found its way to motorcycling.
The Airhawk seat cushions are available in three series or versions and have multiple sizes and shapes within each series; the original Airhawk, the economical Airhawk 2, and the premium Airhawk R. Not all sizes and shapes are available in all versions, though, so make sure you double check the dimensions on the listing to make sure the Airhawk seat cushion you choose will fit on your motorcycle seat.
The main difference between the Airhawk and the Airhawk 2 is the material the cells are made of. The original Airhawk is made of neoprene rubber. This material has a very heavy duty feel and has some stretchiness. The Airhawk 2 is made of polyurethane. This material is lighter and thinner and a lot less stretchy. The Airhawk 2 is still much better than most any other type of cushion and is economically priced, but for the longer distance rider, the original Airhawk or the Airhawk R is going to be well worth the extra investment.
The Airhawk R uses the same high quality neoprene as the original Airhawk but has an updated cell arrangement. This new configuration has been designed specifically for motorcycling and alleviates almost all the pressure on easily irritated rider parts.
All of these styles also offer improved circulation over other seat covers. This reduces numbness in the toes and keeps you tuned in to your foot controls. The improved airflow throughout the seating area also helps manage moisture which allows your wicking undergarments to perform at very high levels. This may help to reduce chaffing and sore skin.
There are a couple of ways to install these cushions. If you have an easily removable seat you use the loops on all four corners and the provided straps to attach the cushion then replace the seat. If your seat is bolted on, you use only one of the straps and the front two loops. Slide the strap over the front of your seat and your almost ready. Remove the Airhawk from its cover. Open the valve and blow about a half of a breath into it. Quickly close the valve. Reinstall the Airhawk into its cover and sit on your bike. Reopen the valve to let air out until you can just barely feal the cusion between you and your seat. When it's properly inflated it will look almost flat. All in all, the Airhawk line of motorcycle seat cushions sets the bar for riding comfort and once you ride with one you’ll be making excuses to go the long way home.
